challenger, ken cuccinelli. roanoke college finds mcauliffe with as much of a 15-point lead but quinnipiac poll has him leading by four points. in an e-mail sent to supporters thursday, mcauliffe made it very clear, don't get comfortable and don't sit this one out. mcauliffe wrote to his supporters, in off year elections like this when tea party voters turn out more reliably than democrats. for 45 years, the political party that controls the white house has lost our governor's race the next year. in 2009, fewer than 40% of virginia voters cast a ballot for governor, despite the fact that nearly 70% voted in the presidential election the year before. there's a lot at stake in the state of virginia, no question about it. ken cuccinelli has spent his entire career as an elected official, trying to roll back any progress on women's reproductive rights. cuccinelli's running mate for lieutenant governor, e.w. jackson, has clearly defined himself as an extremist home phone. folks, this is not an election day the country want to miss. get out and vote in virginia. joining me tonight for the "rapid
cuccinelli and chris christie has a wide lead over barbara buono. but virginia, new jersey say a lot of the ballots for the heart of the republican party. the clintons are really making virginia their territory. >> exactexactly. >> but it's going to show the difference between chris christie taking over a blue state and here we go with mcauliffe where ken cuccinelli could have run away with this race. >> this is like the bonapartes making maximillan emperor of mexico. this is a reach by the clintons. they take a guy, a good guy, mcauliffe, and put him into virginia. it's an extraordinary success. he's a very likeable guy but the clintons will get a lot of credit for this. this is the first big pin on the map. we've got virginia next time. >> do you think this is the tale of where the republican party is going and chris christie will become the national story? >> i have a dog in this race. i want the republican party to return to its roots. it will always have a very hard right part to it but i think it's got to rebuild its center. i think with christie they have a good shot at rebuil
auliffe is several points ahead of his republican rival, ken cuccinelli. the question is what it will lock like on november 5th. he brought in the big dog, long time friend and former president you may know by the name of bill clinton. boost turn out particularly among african-american voters in college towns. on sunday, clinton kicked off a four-day, nine-city tour of the state with mcoffive. casting cuccinelli as divicive. he urged democrats not to take anything for granted. >> the one political virtue of extremism is this. if you can really get people all hot and bothered and their inside is in knots, full of anger and steam coming out of their ears instead of a light bulb going off in their brains, they will vote. they will show up every time. >> republicans inside washington run against health care and republicans outside washington run against washington, democrats everywhere are running against the tea party. >> just recently my opponent, ken cuccinelli was campaigning at a gathering of his supporters with ted cruz. he refused to stand up for virginia and against ted cruz's shut down str
's the front-runner right now. president didn't waste any time linking ken cuccinelli to the national tea party. >> you've seen an extreme faction of the republican party that has shown again and again and again that they are willing to hijack the entire party and the country and the economy and grind progress to an absolute halt if they don't get 100% of what they want. if you embrace the very politics that led to this shutdown, i guarantee you it's not in the rear view mirror of voters in virginia they remember. they understand that that is not how you govern and that is not how you move america forward. >> cuccinelli's campaign predicted president obama's visit would energize be republican voters outraged over the obama care rollout exchanges. terry mcauliffe leads cuccinelli by 12 points. >> that's a big gap. >> that's massive. >> we'll see. okay. are we going to go to toronto or should we wait until little center i think we'll do it after the break. you all haven't been that well behaved. >> let's smoke. >> no. let's not. that's bad. >> help me out, willie. >> terry wins this race. christi
. of course, neither is anti sodomy laws, which is another focus of ken cuccinelli and rand paul, but that's another story for another day. the only thing i can figure here is it's hard for, quote, unquote, libertarians, right, to square their so-called love of freedom with an overbearing federal government that wants to tell women what to do with their bodies and essentially force them to give birth. so i think this eugenics thing is a way to say, well, if we don't force all women to have births, then the government is going to go to this place of eugenics. that's the only thing i can figure. it's a very bizarre situation. >> good try. erin, ken cuccinelli has already been struggling with female voters, in the most recent polls down a whopping 24 points. now he's got rapid paul going off about science fiction and the reason behind denying a woman control of her own body. is that a way to win back female voters? >> it's not the way to win back female voters. if you're looking at this double digit gap continuing to yawning and continuing to grow, these are people who supported personhood am
to stump for the gop's ken cuccinelli. even ron paul is expected to follow in his son's, rand paul's, footsteps perhaps proving that copying others does, in fact, run in the family. still, none of this is ex-pebpe to help cuccinelli or his campaign where his latest scandal involves the venom he once spewed in a newsletter sent to reporters. with the president scheduled to campaign for democrat terry mcauliffe this weekend, the only question now appears to be whether cuccinelli loses by double or single digits. joining us now, msnbc political analyst, the great professor michael eric dyson. this race, sir, has been a snapshot of what is hurting republicans nationally. we have a candidate who performs very poorly among women. whose hatred for homosexuality is matched by his contempt for the affordable care act and seems obsessed that oral sex is never performed in public. does that seem like a winning agenda to you? >> only if you're interested in multicultural -- on halloween. tho that's not a treat, that's a trick. absolutely, martin. you articulated by the republican party continu
to be in the hands of the democrat, terry acall live. "the washington post" poll showing him up on ken cuccinelli the republican attorney general there 51-39, libertarian candidate polling at 8%. there's a big gap among women. mcauliffe leads cuccinelli by 24 points and i under the president will be going into virginia this weekend, jim. >> if i were the president that's what i would do. we're up by 12. no chance that democrats wouldn't win this seat. i would go in there and help claim part of the victory. mcauliffe is nervous. you want help from groups that helped obama. there's no mystery in the outcome. inside the white house worried that the clintons are getting the attention for spending so much time on this race in the state, building up their political operation and will they get the credit for the victory? partially. at the end of the day this was a superior candidate in an environment that very much favored democrats. >> jim, let me ask enthusiast, from outside of virginia not following the race close lui it makes no sense to me a libertarian candidate who run against cuccinelli whose co
's the only democrat, he gets my vote the devil himself would be better on women's issues than ken cuccinelli. tom, i guess, this to me seems in virginia the ultimate test of what the tea party can do in a general election in a swing state. terry mcauliffe is a weak democratic candidate this is an off year election. it should favor the republican. all these conditionsist that should make this a winnable race for republicans. like you say, the fact that cuccinelli will lose this, is there any sign, are you hearing any seen from the republicans of rethinking their strategy, rethinking that convention and more broadly rethinking the leaning on the pea party? >> i think, lock, the party has become estranged from the business base, you have the lt. gov. not endorsing cuccinelli. a number of high profile republicans not supporting the ticket at this point. there is a lot of rethinking. remember the party is controlled by the nomination process which happens to be convention at this point. a very conservative central committee. so for all of this i think it will take a few years to sort out. this is
campaigning for ken cuccinelli -- >> perfect. >> -- a very right wing republican candidate for governor. >> perfect. >> i think his problem is the wisconsinites are really getting on to him. it's notable if that poll you mentioned mary burke, the announced candidate, a democrat, got 45%. kathleen vinhaut, a state senator who hasn't said she's going to run for governor, might get into the primary, got 44%. what you see is wisconsinites are clearly looking for an alternative, and my sense is that if scott walker keeps running around the country, campaigning for president, somebody might be able to spend some time in wisconsin and beat him. >> he clearly wants to be president of the united states. wants the nomination. in his book, walker made a point of trashing romney's campaign strategy. he says that romney did a lousy job of presenting a positive vision of free-market solutions to our nation's problem in a way that is relevant to people's lives." ruth, what do you think? do you think walker has laid out solutions? >> well, maybe he presents them with a smile on his face and it sounds p

, at chris christie and ken cuccinelli is that friction, the difference between the tea party versus the establishment. and i want to play for you what conservative leader ralph reed says he thinks the republican party needs to do moving forward. >> you've got to say what you're for and not just what you're against. >> amen. >> it's not enough to be against obama care, what's your plan. secondly, you have to win some candidates who are effective messengers who can win people who even don't always agree with you on every issue. >> so how does the republican party move forward from here? what will you be looking for? what will poll numbers tell us? >> what i like is the republican establishment and republican elites kind of looking at the republican party and saying what ought to happen. but the fact is the voters -- the primary voters, the base voters of the republican party are the drivers of this. and they're the ones who give us these candidates that are elected in general elections. chris christie probably can't be nominated in the republican party -- >> you're talking probably an
. this has been a very, very negative race and so it's six points and cuccinelli has closed that, largely by trying to make this a referendum on obamacare. he leads with men and the poll and others have suggested there's a passion on his side more so than mcauliffe but mcauliffe has a significant advantage with women. that's what many have said is driving the democrats. there's a lot of rhetoric about that in the past couple of days. there's an opportunity for a comeback but it would be surprise at this point. democrats increasingly enthusiastic about what's unfolding here. jenna: you said that marco rubio is coming out. there have been a lot of democratic stars also the last few days. >> sure. vice president joe biden was campaigning with mcauliffe this morning. they've known each other for deck ateds in american politics over the course of the weekend. barack obama was campaigning for mcauliffe as well. hillary clinton and bill clinton has been on the campaign trail for him. democrats are saying that this should be about the republicans just being too radical, too extreme. listen. >> la
